There was one article on the show today that had me asking so many questions. Again, how could someone stay stuck in an elevator for 29 hours? After the entrapment in NY a couple of years ago, I figured it would be the last we’d hear of this kind of thing happening. Plus with our smart phones, the escalator roll back was caught on someone’s phone and while slow the situation is still scary. Also on the program today is a good code comparison article and a new product on the market from Maxton you’ll want to check out! And Elevator World Launches a Photo Contest where you can win some cool goodies!
